Can I become addicted to oxycodone?

It is possible to become addicted to oxycodone, but this is rare, especially if you are taking it as a doctor has prescribed.

The dose you take will be reviewed to make sure you are only taking the amount you need to control your pain.

If you’re taking oxycodone to relieve pain (rather than using it as a recreational drug) it’s unlikely you will get addicted to it because you’re not taking it to get a “high”.
